"The secret of my health is applying honey inside and oil outside."

-Democritus (460-370 BC), Greek philosopher and physician.

Honey is a precious gift of nature, not only a nourishing food but also an important humectant and antimicrobial agent.It is, thus, widely used in pharmacology and cosmetology. It has wonderful emollient properties and protects and nourishes the skin.

Having in mind honey’s long and romantic history in cosmetology (Cleopatra of Egypt, queen Anna of England, Madame du Barry, Chinese women), we decided to add it in our soaps. The result is an exceptionally mild, hydrating, soothing soap with warm, earthy scent and light tan colour.
